I have had my Netgear WGR614 V.6 home router for 2 years now. Has worked flawlessly the whole time, except for the occasional power outage reset. Now, I cannot connect to internet while wireless suddenly. I have one laptop at home which still works while being wired through my Lan 1 port. I took my laptop to a WiFi hotspot and no problems. This leads me to a connection/software issue with the router.
I called my ISP first to check the modem. No issues there. Then I called Netgear support. They ran me through uploading latest firmware. After much time on the phone, I was told that I would receive a callback within 2 days with a possible solution because all options had been tried. It has now been a week.
I realized that the tech support never even had me reset the thing, so I followed the instructions on my router support page to no avail.
So, I am still stuck with a router that connects through the LAN, and the proper lights are on wired and wireless. It even shows that the network is connected on the PC, sometimes full, sometimes limited connectivity. I sure that I have messed up the process somewhere, but can't wrap my head around it. I have also shut off my windows firewall and disabled the router security as well.

Might I suggest looking at the routers configuration. This can be done by typing in 192.168.1.1 into your web browser. Typically the default log in is: User Admin, Password is password. You want DHCP set on. Save all your settings. Then reset to factory default. There should be a reset button on the router. This will reset it to when it was new- any changes you made will be gone. .
Sadly the mimo router you show in the picture is similar to the one I had. I still have it, and it works somewhat. I had the same problems, and Netgear had no fix for me.
So I fixed it with dlink, I went and bought a dlink router and the problem vanished. Sorry to reply like this, but it was the only fix for me. The dlink router has worked flawlessly. I refrained from further Netgear purchases after this. The problem has not returned. :) Now please don't rush out and buy dlink, any other brand will work, like linksys, or belkin. Sometimes the problem is caused by the brand. This problem and many like it caused Netgear major problems they'll never recover from.
Word of the wise..Quality can never be fixed by quantity. Pay the extra $10 and get a decent router.
The only way to revive the router is by doing a reset. If it still won't work I hate to be the to tell you this but the router is busted. Consider yourself lucky that it worked flawlessly for eight years. =)
Ok. i have the exact same problem, but i use linksys. I have has geeksquad and they dont know. I have only one option i havent tried. try to just hook up the modem to your router only. Buy a wireless adapter for your home computer. If it doesnt work, return it for a refund. I feel for you guys because i have been going through hell and it drives me crazy that even geeksquad doesnt know. (By the way dont buy that garbage when the people say you need a new router, because they just want more money.)
